Set up to execute for success!
I’ll play the ball a tad farther back of a normal set up when in a fairway bunker. With my hybrid, it is ahead of center, so I’ll adjust to about center stance.
I’ll stand a bit taller and focus on keeping my feet pressure on the insides to avoid over-driving with my legs.
I always club-up when in a fairway bunker. So instead of a 5 iron, I am using my 19˚ hybrid. My legs are passive in the bunker to promote ball-first contact.
Stay in it to win it! I am still visualizing the shot as I stay in the shot for a successful execution. The tendency is to rise up and out of your posture resulting in thin or fat shots.
Drive through aggressively to a full finish. I made sure I got to a complete finish to create the necessary clubhead speed to pull off this ballsy shot.
